Overrated: The Eagles

Take It Easy my ass. I will NOT take it easy! Can someone please tell me how their Greatest Hits album is the highest selling record of all time? Seriously now people. It's campfire music listened to by hitchhikers and passive-aggressive serial killers.

That Don Henley guy really pisses me off. Remember that song he had, 'The End of the Innocence'? That song was so depressing that Bobby McFerrin had no other choice but to write the song 'Don't Worry Be Happy'.

True story. My parents are divorced. Guess what their last tangible effort to stay together was? Attending the Hell Freezes Over Tour in '94. Irony huh? Marriage over.

I will concede that a few good things did come out of their union. Would the doors have been opened for Glen Frey to sing 'The Heat Is On' if not for his past success with The Eagles? One would think, and even hope, not. Joe Walsh was also able to release his poorly received solo album that just happened to have one of the greatest titles of all time, Got Any Gum?

But cleary these postive strides occured after the breakup of The Eagles. I should say that it is no coincidence. Furthermore, it was only after The Eagles reunited that we got ourselves into this mess in Iraq. Once again, coincidence? Let Judge Lance Ito be the judge of that.

The Eagles. Hell has frozen over and I will see you there!
